The index will be named
filename.i; the index is written to a temporary file which is then renamed to this.
If no filenames are given on the command line because the
-f option has been used, and no
-o option is given, the index will be named
Bibliographic databases are divided into records by blank lines.
Within a record, each fields starts with a
% character at the beginning of a line.
Fields have a one letter name which follows the
The values set by the
-c, -n, -l and
-t options are stored in the index;
when the index is searched, keys will be discarded and truncated in a
manner appropriate to these options;
the original keys will be used for verifying that any record
found using the index actually contains the keys.
This means that a user of an index need not know whether these
options were used in the creation of the index,
provided that not all the keys to be searched for
would have been discarded during indexing
and that the user supplies at least the part of each key
that would have remained after being truncated during indexing.
The value set by the
-i option is also stored in the index
and will be used in verifying records found using the index.

Index whole files.
Each file is a separate record.
